Posted:Whhile I wouldn't say I swear like a trooper, I do swear quite a bit. And I want to try and stop it for next year. I also want to try and stop the blasphemy as well!

Any ideas people have about the best way to do this? I can't afford a 'swear jar' or anything like that, cos I'm saving for next year and I need all the money I can keep!

thanks!

Posted:Jon, I was listening to the radio the other week and someone had that python thingo and put a backing on it! it was so funny!

I notice that I swear depending on who I'm with, but I feel that if I'm going to be teaching, then I'd better watch myself! But usually I am in agreement that they are just words, so get over them!

So far I'm just thinking before I speak a bit more and replacing a swear word with something a bit less harsh.

Posted:i swear enough to make an english longbowman proud. because they're just words. we need to reclaim those words back from the taboo list, and get the stodgy old people to accept it :P

why should funk be less offensive than [censored]? why should [censored] be any more evil than ship? if its the meaning, then surely sex, poontang, bog, dump, poo and drop a smelly one should all be seen as bad as well, shouldnt they?

Posted:Yeah but F*CK is the most versatile word in the English language. It can be used to describe the act of procreation (F*CK); as an instruction ('F*CK off'); an as intensifier ('this is F*CKING terrible'); to describe a person you don't like, or describe a person partaking in procreation (F*CKER)

and many others i'm sure but my stoned brain has run out of steam: any other suggestions for meanings of the word??

Posted:monty python had a song as well:
"I bet you they won't play this song on the radio"

"I bet you they won't play this song on the radio,
I bet you they won't play this new $%^& song.
It's not that it's %$(* or #$*&^&* controversial
It's just that the @*%$ing words are awfully strong.

You can't say ^&*@ on the radio,
Or $@#! or ^&*% or 4*%*
You can't even say I'd like to ?:"* you someday
Unless you're a doctor with a really large ~!*%

So I bet you they won't play this song on the radio
I bet you they don't *&%$ing well program it.
I bet you those &*(#ing old program directors
Will think it's a load of horse $&!#"


what naughty men

but for Rouge,
I think consciously correcting yourself every time you slip up would help
that and having other words to say with great venom
like HONK

Posted:I had a strange experience with swearing recently.

I do swear quite regularly, but only with company who don't mind.
Then my flatmates dad came round my house. Suddenly, my vocabulary became extremely limited. The only way I could accent anything was by placing an f-word prefix or suffix. This was fairly problematic, and the more I thought about it, the more I swore.
I had to appologise, but I don't think his dad was in any way offended. I just felt rather stupid. I think it must be my parents who would tell me swearing is just lazy use of language.

There are so many words in the English language, that if you have to use wearing to make a point then your probably just not very clever.

Anyway, in the end, we all ate pizza, and I refered to it with less offensive phrases, and most parties involved lived happily ever after.

Apart from my flatmat, who's leg is still in plaster.

Silly c*&#
